Buyouts: Don't Be Foolish

The hottest April Fools trend of 08? Announcing that your site has been bought by a big media company. Stuff White People Life, Jezebel (who've definitely taken the joke the farthest) and Stereogum (or, BYT on behalf of Stereogum?) are all in on the act. If any of these outlets has actually been sold and chose today to break the news, then that was really poor timing. But I'm going to go with my gut and call bullshit on all three.

Update: If there was any doubt in your mind that Jezebel was kidding, please see exhibit A and exhibit B under the category No Fucking Way.
